As the year shifts toward fall, we know whats in store. An abundance of food, functions, holidays, colds and flus. We can let the usual stresses and illness get us like they do every year.... or we can shift the cycle. Why not try approaching this holiday season with more self care, essential oils and exercises directed at helping you stay healthy, happy and balanced?
We hope you choose to join us at Samsara for yoga, table and thai massage, doTERRA Essential oils, sonic lymph machine rides, fresh organic juices and pranayama. All aimed at keeping YOU healthier and happier.
We have some fun community events for the whole family! Don't forget about kids yoga Saturdays at 9:30.
Since massage is a great way to detox and this is a great time of year to give your body an extra cleanse we have two October specials. Our fall special is a 90 minute massage with doTERRA essentials oils, cups and hot stones with David Delgado, for the price of a 60 minute massage. CBD Wraps with essential oils are also available with Meladi Moret to help with tension & chronic pain.

People of Samsara Featuring Brett & Mallory Harmon
1) Why did you start practicing yoga?
Mallory - I started practicing yoga a few years ago, but began practicing more regularly this year to help with anxiety. 
Brett - my initial draw to yoga was for exercise; however, now I find myself practicing yoga for not only my body but mind as well. 
2)How do you feel regular massage and yoga have changed you or helped you?
Mallory - regular yoga and massage has changed and helped me in so many ways. Stephen often says that what we practice and learn on our mats will help us to deal with the chaos of life, and that is exactly what yoga has done for me. I have always been an incredibly anxious person and yoga has helped me to appreciate where I am in my journey on and off the mat. I also feel that yoga has helped me to appreciate and see beauty in all aspects of life, whether it is subtle moments of happiness, the ability to breathe, or finally holding a pose that I've been practicing for a while. Regular massage has helped me to become more aware of where my body holds tension and the importance of releasing that tension. Katherine has taught me that our bodies have holding patterns and that massage helps to recondition our bodies to let go of those holding patterns.
Brett - I have found that a regular yoga practice has been an overall release for me - release of back pain, of stress, and obligations that do not serve me during my practice. 
3)Any advice on how to keep a consistent practice? 
Mallory - my advice on how to keep a consistent yoga practice is to know that not only are you practicing for yourself, but you are also practicing for others. I feel that when you practice yoga, you create more space for love, acceptance, and kindness that is contagious. And I think that when you approach your practice from a stance of helping yourself and others, it makes it even more special.
Brett - try and be as dedicated as you can, and when you realize how much it helps, it will be harder for you to find reasons to miss class. 
4) Any advice for new students?
Mallory - my advice for new students would be to not compare yourself to anyone else in the room. Everyone has their own path and journey to take while practicing, and it is so important to be kind to yourself and where you are in your practice. 
Brett - keep an open mind.
